Use Pressure Care Pads, Wedges, Cushions and More to Relieve Pressure from Prolonged
Therapeutic pressure care is important if you maintain a consistent position or sit for prolonged periods of time. Lying in bed due to an illness or age can cause pressure sores. You will want to find a pressure care pad, wedge, cushion, or another type of pressure relieving device to prevent pressure sores.
The Right Pressure Care for Your Pressure Sore
A diffuser cushion is an excellent tool for you to have if you are confined to a wheelchair or if you spend long hours sitting at a desk. The absorbent surface makes this affordable, durable, compact and light-weight. You may also find this cushion helpful if you attend sport events and sit on the metal benches.
A pressure diffuser cushion is a comfortable combination of a pressure diffuser as well as a memory foam mattress topper. The memory mattress topper diffuses pressure throughout your entire body, relieving the pressure from the key spots. This will help prevent pressure sores that can eventually breakdown and spread infection through your body, causing you to seek further medical attention.
A multi-purpose cushion can help lift you a bit higher in your chair at work, at home or in a wheelchair. The convolutions of the cushion allows air to flow under you which will dissipate heat and moisture, making the breakdown of your skin less likely.
A body wedge aligner reduces the pressure sores developed in the sacral area. This wedge aligner helps promote high alignment, for a more comfortable and rejuvenating sleep. This makes it more comfortable if you are forced to lie on your side due to an injury or medical condition. You can also use it under your thighs to elevate and tilt your pelvic area for pelvic traction.
Pressure relief can be obtained through several cushion options. Your medical provider will be able to identify the cushions that will best help you. Use a cushion from the beginning for better health and recovery.
